    There is no water leaving the tank. The pump makes a klunk klunk sound, no steam, no warer.

    I have the same problem. If only there were a solution. Breville hasn't responded to my email. Sigh.

I had the same exact problem -- the water basket simply needs to be pushed down harder.

There is a blockage in the steam/hot water circuit . Try poking the end of the steam tip on wand with a paper clip. Make sure turn the hot water on by pressing the hot water button and turning the steam wand.

We have a 4 month old gaggia titanium. Today, the steam wand stopped working. (It makes coffee just fine.) I've cleaned the steam wand. When I turn the steam dial, very little steam comes out and I hear a...


Sounds like the steam wand is getting blocked some where either at the metal end or in the parnello wand if you machine has one at the end of the steam wand, if both of those are clean then try this push in on the steam knob if that works then tap rod assemble or steam valve needs to be replaced, make sure to ask about the stainless steel valve instead of the plastic one.

My steam/hot water arm fell out along with no steam


Easiest way to get to it, remove the 2 screws in the bean hopper, and remove the hopper, there are a few screws under the water tank, this should give you access to the machine top. Check the end of the steam wand it might be blocked use a paper clip to clear it out. Run it under the faucet to make suree it is clear. Check the microswitch that is connected to the steam valve, It can be seen when you turn the knob to open the steam/hot water valve, make sure it is not stuck in the on position.

Gaggia Titanium, makes hot water but no steam


Push in on the steam knob, if that works, then the steam valve assembly needs to be replaced, tell the Tech where you bought the machine that you need to get the new stainless steel valve.

Stuck


I read about others having the problem, and used some of their suggestions. What worked was to repeatedly hit the hot water button, open the valve, then close it when it said to. After several repetitions it worked. Since then, I have followed steaming with running about 4 ounces of hot water through, so their won't be air in the line. So far, so good--** problems today.

Steam wand shooting water instead of steam


You're supposed to wait for the blinking light to go solid before attempting to steam your milk!
Until then, the water isn't hot enough (it's at coffee-brewing temp, not steaming temp) to produce steam.
Further, after steaming, the water is too hot for coffee's correct brewing temp, and the light again blinks until it has cooled down enough, if you care.
